Sagittarius Horoscope: July 2013

The Journey Within

This is a very significant month -- but it's more about what's going on inside you than external events. On July 17, your philosophical ruling planet, Jupiter, forms a Grand Water Trine with serious Saturn and spiritual Neptune. This uncommon pattern touches the depths of your soul to provide insights into the most intimate areas of your life.

Jupiter in your 8th House of Deep Sharing illuminates the heart of relationships and connects that awareness with your 12th House of Secrets and your 4th House of Home and Family. You may not be able to put what you're learning into words, but a profound sense of inner knowing can guide you to make wise decisions about your long-term goals.

The moody Cancer New Moon in your 8th house on July 8 squares surprising Uranus, spurring a sudden shift of feelings or circumstances in close emotional and professional partnerships. You must be more sensitive on July 13, when proactive Mars shifts into protective Cancer, if you hope to keep alliances on track.

You slowly begin to think more about collaborating with others with rational Mercury's forward turn in your 8th House on July 20, but the unconventional Aquarius Full Moon on July 22 is loaded with mixed messages. This lunation in your 3rd House of Information encourages you to be receptive to fresh ideas and new channels of communication.

However, its square to restrictive Saturn provokes resistance that may complicate exchanges of information. Delays and inner doubts demand that you study the situation carefully and organize your thoughts before expressing them openly. Yet the Sun's entry into theatrical Leo and your 9th House of Big Ideas later in the day tempts you to jump the gun, which should be avoided at all costs.

Keep in Mind this Month

Tuning in with your feelings may not produce immediate answers, but will provide more valuable insights than counting on your rational mind alone.

Key Dates for Sagittarius


July 19-22: Soft Launch

Your dreams seem more real than ever when concrete Saturn trines illusory Neptune on July 19. The next day, dynamic Mars forms an emotional Grand Water Trine with Saturn and Neptune, motivating you to take decisive action. The enthusiastic Mars-Jupiter conjunction on July 22 in defensive Cancer and your 8th House of Intimacy suggests that gaining the cooperation of a key partner could be challenging, but gently expressing your feelings should lead to success. The Sun enters brassy Leo and Venus slips into demure Virgo on the same day, mixing enthusiasm with caution. Starting a new project or planning a fabulous vacation with a loved one requires a mutual understanding if it's going to work.

July 27-28: Labor of Love

You'll need hard work and dedication on July 27 as a Mars-Pluto opposition and a Sun-Saturn square seem to offer limited return for maximum effort. If you can slow down to focus on a tough task or deal with a difficult-to-please person, though, you could see a sweet outcome when resourceful Venus forms a supportive sextile with benevolent Jupiter on July 8.
